Gonzalez: Sailing toward veganism.
After TV announcers boasted this season that Chiefs' player Jared Allen had gone vegetarian, I took a trip to Arrowhead Stadium to chat with the hulking defensive end and see if his new diet was the reason for his standout season. It turned out that sportscasters' claims that Allen had given up meat were greatly exaggerated. But the 2007 NFL sack leader was happy to boast about his new, lean diet — and the washboard abs he had to show for it.
Allen asks an opponent about his diet.
Last week, Gonzalez's dietary adventures made the pages of The Wall Street Journal. Like Allen, he's eating a more plant-based diet and enjoying the benefits. But don't expect him to be out picketing with PETA any time soon.
